From its prime position on the banks of the Goulburn River in Victoria's Daylesford & the Macedon Ranges region, Seymour boasts attractions ranging from military and railway sites, to parks, art galleries and wineries.
Declared a town in 1863, Seymour acts as a service centre for the nearby Puckapunyal army training grounds.
In the 1940s Seymour's Royal Hotel, then called Moody's Hotel, came to prominence with its depiction in artist Russell Drysdale's painting The Cricketers. The Old Post Office Seymour keeps the town's artistic fires burning with its large and continuously changing collection of traditional, modern, impressionist and contemporary works by noted Australian artists. Local art is also on show at The Old Courthouse Gallery.
The Seymour Railway Heritage Centre displays historic carriages, steam and diesel locomotives and attracts trainspotters from near and far.
Regional bounty from Seymour's fertile Goulburn River Valley is showcased at the Tastes of the Goulburn festival in October.
Seymour is approximately 110 kilometres from Melbourne, or around an hour and 20 minutes by car along the Hume Freeway.
